So many of you have been through this, someone must know- Yukon is home now, awake and not so happy after being neutered. My first concern is that he is constantly erect. Is this normal? I'd rather not call my vet already if I can get an answer here. Thanks.

I'm not sure of the time, but I know he was out of surgery by 3pm. Also, he was given anesthesia that takes longer to recover from due to a heart condition.

I think it's pretty common too. If you're concerned a quick call to the vet won't hurt.

I just saw this post today- That "little" problem didn't last long. All seems to be well. He's still swollen, but not worse. We're hoping the crate rest will help. It's been so long since we had our last lab Gunner done that I can't remember the recovery . He sure seems to feel fine, we just all miss playing :)
